Some people think I'm dorky because I have boxes of winter clothes that I swap out for my summer clothes, or the other way around, depending on the season.

But don't we do the same with our winter toys?

It's finally getting cold and starting to snow in Wyoming.

Time to put the motorcycle, the quad, and the side by side away and get out the snowmobile.

I bet you saw the first snow of the season and thought, 'oh good I don't have to mow the lawn anymore.'

Fine, put the lawnmower away. Then get out the snowblower.

Get rid of the rake and grab the snow shovel.

What - did you think you were done with yard work? NOPE. It just got heavier and wetter.

Put away the golf clubs and grab the hockey stick.

Put away hose golf shoes and grab some ice skates.

Get rid of that wakeboard and get a snowboard.

Maybe swap those water skies for snow skies.

You can still go camping. Some people like doing that in the winter. You'll just need warmer gear.

That's okay. It keeps us from getting bored.
